~ When It Rains............

Yep, you know the rest. First of all, I want to say that this post is going to be in "pity post" style, but I know in my heart and my mind that without a doubt, things could be worse and I am so thankful that I know that and realize that. My real purpose in this will be to hopefully get a laugh or two. Thank goodness I have been able to laugh about...well, most of it!!!

I feel like it's pouring. Why? This is why....and, you know folks- you can't make this stuff up!!!

- ok, as you all know, I had to have a hysterectomy last January (almost a year! Wow!) because of all the "female" issues I have been blessed with. Well, apparently my endometriosis is back (I'm 99% sure)...so, back to the doctor I will be going. There is a specialist for it in Atlanta, but of course it is a "out of network" doctor, so seeing as how our house still hasn't sold, I can't afford to pay "my part". So, not sure what the next step is, I just know that I'm not looking forward to it. I am SO LUCKY & BLESSED that I had my 2 children when I did.....and, thankful that I was fertile. With all of the problems, I easily could not have been so lucky.

- next, I thought that I had finally gotten our "sicknesses" overwith for a while. In the past 2 months, we have all passed around pink eye twice, the stomach bug, sinus infection and the coughing crud. We are all feeling better (except for Taylor's allergy cough) and bam....Taylor wakes up from her nap today with a red eye. I am PRAYING that it isn't pink eye again!!!!!

- Appliances.....ok, my refrigerator door won't stay closed very well. It's one of those that stays closed just long enough for you to walk away :)...I have to check it about a million times a day to make sure it's closed. Then, my stove stopped working! Thankfully, it turned out to only be the "bake element". But, of course, it took my oh about 2 months to figure that out!!! Ordered it, it arrived today and now, I'm back in business. And, then...........this afternoon I went to the garage where our big freezer is and notice that apparently it had checked out!!!! ALL of my meat was thawing!!! And, NO I didn't have room in my other "refuse to stay closed" one. So, I cleaned out, cooked what I had to, and packed it up to refreeze. All with Cole & taylor running around my feet....yep, it was that kind of day! Oh my goodness..... almost 2 hours later, I'm done cooking it and bagging it. Needless to say, I was no longer in the mood for dinner after smelling hamburger & sausage for 2 hours.

- Career- yes, I don't feel as if I even have one at all anymore. You know....real estate is just that good. Well, in the area of becoming a teacher.......all I can say is that the Praxis II test is HARD!!!! For anyone planning to take it, just know that. I studied and studied and studied and got in there, and wondered if they gave me the wrong study guide!!!!! Yep, that bad!!! It will only be by the grace of God that I get a passing grade. Won't find out for 4 weeks- yep, that's right. So, I feel like I am lost in lingo world not knowing what my purpose is at all.....it's all up in the air. I'm just glad that God has control of it and not me, because with my track record lately, I would be sure to screw it up.

So, sorry for the rambling, but hopefully some of this will explain a little of why I have posted since December 20th....I hope things will settle some so I can do better!

Be blessed!!!
